    Need a nice hotel, hostel near St. Pancras, London. Any suggestion?

    Hi, I recommend: a) Clink 261 Hostel (Ashlee House) - www.ashleehouse.co.uk - prices from £14.00 per person per night - closest backpacker hostel to Kings Cross St Pancras, London's most well-connected tube station and now home to the Eurostar. Staying at Ashlee house, you'll find yourself within walking distance of the most popular tourist attractions in London such as the British Museum, Oxford Street, Convent Garden, Madame Tussauds and the fabulous Regent's Park b) Generator hostel London - www.generatorhostels.com - close to Russell Square or c) YHA hostels (http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/london-st-pancras or http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/london-central).

    Where are the best shopping spots in London, not too expensive?

    Hi Sarah, Top brands from Zara, Gap, H&M, Esprit, Next, French Connection, Top shop and other clothes shops can be found on Oxford street (www.oxfordstreet.co.uk ), Regent street (www.regentstreetonline.com ) and Carnaby Street (www.carnaby.co.uk). Primark (www.primark.co.uk), selling affordable clothes, can be also found on Oxford street. For "young fashion", vintage, hand-made clothes etc. I would recommend Spitalfields Market and Brick Lane (Sunday, close to tube station: Liverpool Street Station, more info on: www.oldspitalfieldsmarket.com). Portobello market (Saturday, Nothing Hill) and Camden Market are also good places for shopping. For "Haute Couture" go to Harrods (www.harrods.com) or Harvey Nichols (www.harveynichols.com). More shopping? :) Go to Westfield shopping centre (one is close to Shepperds Bush tube station, uk.westfield.com/london / second is close to Stratford tube station, uk.westfield.com/stratfordcity). More info on London markets. Check London markets guide here: http://www.mintytrips.co.uk/london_markets_guide.html Enjoy London, Jacob over 8 years ago
